BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Cannon Ball man accused of assaulting a woman in the hallway of a casino on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation has been sentenced to five years in prison.

Forty-one-year-old Dustin Lester was accused in February of punching and kicking the woman multiple times at Prairie Knights Casino. U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon says Lester was dating the woman. The assault was captured by security video.

Lester pleaded guilty in July to assault with a dangerous weapon. He’ll be on supervised release for three years following his prison term.
